Hamburg Süd making a mark in door-to-door transportation

 

Intermodal transportation goes beyond the mere maritime transportation by developing an optimal door-to-door transportation chain and organising the appropriate modes of transportation for this worldwide. So-called pre- and on-carriage will continue to be part of the specific services offered by Hamburg Süd in the future.

 

Hamburg Süd disposes of a particularly efficient and unique network for door-to-door transportation in Central and South America, where Intermodal South America, the continent’s leading logistics trade fair, will be held in São Paulo, Brazil, from March 13 to 15. Hamburg Süd and its Brazilian subsidiary, Aliança, will once again be the official sponsors of Intermodal South America, informed a release.

 

When it comes to intermodal container transportation, both companies have, over years, built a worldwide network with reliable partners who are specialists in their particular fields and geographical areas. "This way, Hamburg Süd can offer its customers, very flexibly and fast, tailor-made and dependable logistics solutions," says Mr Frank Smet, CCO of Hamburg Süd. He adds: "This means our customers do not have to handle complex transportation chains themselves, but they can rely on Hamburg Süd so that their cargo will reach its destination safely, with the shortest transit time, and on time."

 

Hamburg Süd organises and carries out the pre- and on-carriage for roughly one-third of all its container transports in Europe—and this share is even larger in other regions of the world. Depending on the particular geography and infrastructure, railways, trucks, or barges are used to collect cargo in the hinterland or take it to its final destination. For example, whereas containers are primarily transported via railway in India, the major waterways—such as the Yangtze—are mainly used in China, and containers generally go over the road in the UK.

 

The Hamburg Süd subsidiary Aliança executes more than 200,000 intermodal moves per year in South America, including stuffing, stripping, cross-docking and warehousing to its customers. Two-thirds of Aliança’s cabotage transports include intermodal operations, allowing customers to have their cargo transported in a cost-efficient manner and with minimum effort, the release added.
